Added this in a comment to your first spam-poetry piece.. it disappear. Two books consciously working the spam/IM spectrum from randomness to pathos: Kasey Mohammad's Deer Head Nation and Drew Gardner's brand new Petroleum Hat. Tony Tost is probably the first-guy-on-the-moon as far as academic writing on the subject goes.

Just putting it out there.

much appreciated, jordan. this is rather willy-nilly research, simply inspired by a simply inspired email, so i'm glad for folks to add to the pile.

i was curious to hear what "actual" (i.e., self-identifying) poets might think of these spamposters. the sheer novelty of word combinations seems somehow valuable despite the inherent absence of craft. so much for the tranquil recollection of overflowed emotion...
